Mafia capo, Antonio Spinelli blew through my orderly life like a cyclone.

Gorgeous and passionate, with a breathtaking brutality, he put me under his spell the moment he touched me, drawing me into his underworld of risk, violence and betrayal.

And I found, just as this sophisticated savage didn’t trust me, I didn’t trust myself. Something happened to me. Some alchemy from the heat between us.

I discovered I was a savage, too.

Synopsis

To truly understand a story; you need to start from the beginning, but to start from the beginning, you have to go back, further than just you. After all, our stories don’t start with us, do they? Our stories start with the person before us, and the person before them. We are created from the stories of those people.

NO ONE’S STORY IS EVER TRULY THEIR OWN.

I tried to create my own story, my own path, my own actions. I’ve seen things people on see in their worst nightmares, but I never let it neat me down. I never let it become who I was. There was no point analyzing what it could be.

COULD BE’S DIDNT MATTER.

Until Maddox came into my world. He saved my life. He changed my story; giving me the second chance some of us only dream about. There was only one thing missing in my second chance, and she was the reason I fought so hard to survive.

MY SISTER.

My sister who is supposed to be dead, well, at least, that’s what I thought.

THAT’S WHAT HE TOLD ME.

Now is where my story changes, but to understand this story, you have to start at the beginning … where it all began … and before.

What he finds out is she’s not only beautiful, but also smart, funny, a fighter, and exactly the kind of woman he wants to share his life with.

FIGHTING REDEMPTION
Ryan Kendall is broken. He understands pain. He knows the hand of violence and the ache of loss. He knows what it means to fail those who need you. Being broken doesn’t stop him wanting the one thing he can’t have; Finlay Tanner. Her smile is sweet and her future bright. She’s the girl he grew up with, the girl he loves, the girl he protects from the world, and from himself.

At nineteen, Ryan leaves to join the Australian Army. After years of training he becomes an elite SAS soldier and deploys to the Afghanistan war. His patrol undertakes the most dangerous missions a soldier can face. But no matter how far he runs, or how hard he fights, his need for Finlay won’t let go.

Returning home after six years, one look is all it takes to know he can’t live without her. But sometimes love isn’t enough to heal what hurts. Sometimes people like him can’t be fixed, and sometimes people like Finlay deserve more than what’s left.

This is a story about war and the cost of sacrifice. Where bonds are formed, and friendships found. Where those who are strong, fall hard. Where love is let go, heartache is born, and heroes are made. Where one man learns that the hardest fight of all, is the fight to save himself.

COMING BACK TO YOU
At one time twenty three year old Maura had it all, loving parents, a best friend and a gorgeous boyfriend. Slowly over the years things were being ripped from her little by little.

But like always in life, once you get comfortable a ball drops. That’s when Pierson comes back to their hometown and back into Maura’s life, turning her world on it’s axis.

Pierson has demons of his own after serving in the military for five years. Tormented from his past and present, he has to come to terms with everything that has happened. He hopes to make amends with his first love.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I’ve always had my nose inside of a book ever since I can remember. And I thought Id try my hand at writing, and Ive wrote ever since I was young, never showing anyone what I was writing. Initially I started writing Coming Back to You without intending to publish, but my hubby of 15 years encouraged me to publish it. And I did. I cant imagine never writing. Its in my blood. 
My mind is always wondering, plotting and full of ideas. I think my hubs questions my sanity sometimes, because I say my characters are real. They feel real to me. 
And I hope my stories make some sort of impact to you readers. I love hearing from you and enjoy talking with you.

CRAZY GOOD
Before there were bikers, or fighters, or even good old-fashioned jerks, there were Navy SEALs. They put the bad in badass because, well…it’s their job.

Navy SEAL Maverick Hart has everything. Women want him. Grown men idolize him. Little boys want to grow up and be like him. The job, the glory—it’s all his. Not because it’s handed to him…because he works hard for it. The second his sights lock on something, he owns it—or destroys it. Unfortunately he does both at the same time.

Windsor Forbes only takes calculated risks in her profession and in her personal life. After being left at the altar by the only person she’s ever loved, the very last thing she’s looking for is a relationship—especially the insane brand an arrogant Navy SEAL is offering. Hesitant, yet trusting to a fault, she gives in.

She knew she shouldn’t take the chance, especially a second time, but love is irrational and their love is perfect, infallible. Or so she thought…

The downfall to having everything is you have that much more to lose. A man like Maverick can’t have it all without something slipping out of grasp.

Jace has spent the last ten years in the Army defusing bomb after bomb, trying to forget the girl who ignited all his passions. Little does he know that the spark still exists.

Ten years ago they had smoldering chemistry, but the spark between them now might light a fuse that leads to an explosion even Jace can’t stop. Not that he wants to. If only Alexa can get past her guilt and trust her heart again.

But how do you put it all on the line when you’ve already lost everything once before?

Will Brittan open her heart to love or will she sabotage the relationship

Melanie’s 3.5 Star Review:

I was warned upfront about this book being a total tear jerker and since I am a known literary masochist, I dove right in—box of tissues beside me, husband and child tucked safely into bed, and my psyche prepped and ready for an emotional sledgehammer to destroy me.

Danielle Jamie’s Tempt My Heart definitely did that. She was not at all shy about pouring in the gut wrenching scenes like gasoline to an already high burning fire. I really was not a pretty sight to behold during the first half of this book. I loved that the author dedicated so much of this book towards Cane and Brittan; I was invested in their love for each other which really made me understand the loss that Brittan dealt with well throughout the book. I also thought it was great that the author took me back to the very beginning of their relationship; it showed a wonderful progression from “puppy love” to the ultimate “love of a lifetime” and so you can only imagine what heartache I felt for Brittan and for Cane. Though there is never a right time for death to come knocking on anyone’s door, there are those that are just a complete tragedy. Cane’s heroic death is one of those. Somehow losing someone whose whole life is still ahead of them becomes harder to accept and even more so, how unrelenting and unconditional Cane’s love was for Brittan even in death. This was blatantly clear in Tempt My Heart and was executed so heartbreakingly well.

So when the sexy, bad boy rockstar by the name of Jordon swaggers into Brittan’s life, I also came to life. The sparks between these two were there from the minute Jordon sets his eyes on Brittan. I will never look at a guitarist strumming on those guitar strings the same way again (and if you want to know what I’m blubbering about, then you really do need to read this book). The swoon factor that surrounds Jordon is legit, he says all the right things, does the right things (especially with those fingers), and really just loves Brittan exactly as she deserves.

I have to admit that I did experience somewhat of a plateau while reading this book. The primary driving force in this book was the emotional sledgehammer of Cane’s death so when that subsided, I found that the plot was being stretched out without much purpose behind it. I was left bothered by some of Brittan’s decisions so I do wish that the momentum remained constant throughout.

The warning blurb to Tempt My Heart by Danielle Jamie does not deceit; it truly will leave you a crying fool, befuddled by the emotions that she drives straight to your heart. I look forward to this author’s future works as I can tell that her full writing potential is just waiting to burst through the seams.

 

One Special Night (Book 2 Take a Chance Series) Review

One Special Night (Book 2 Take a Chance Series)
by Caridad Piñeiro

Stars: 3.5

Review by:
Michelle

Synopsis:

ONE SPECIAL NIGHT Book 2 in the Take a Chance New Adult Erotic Romance Series

He never expected that on one special night his life would change forever . . .

It’s been nearly six months since Tommy de Salvo’s fiancée cheated and left him in the midst of wedding preparations because up-and-coming businessman Tommy was all work and no play. The last thing Tommy wants or needs is to be attracted to another woman who won’t be around for too long. A woman just like Navy Corpsman Jasmine Reyes. She’s rough, tough, and determined to go it alone, but Tommy knows that if he passes up this opportunity, he may regret it more than the loss of his fiancée . . .

She has ignored her needs for too long until now . . .

Jasmine “Doc” Reyes is both emotionally and physically scarred after her tour of duty. Wounded in battle, all she can think about is rebuilding her life and continuing with the career that she’s dreamed about since she was a young child. She has no time for rich sexy men who’ve never had a care in the world and wouldn’t understand her determination. But Tommy’s charm is seductive and she knows that she has to explore the attraction, even if it’s only for this one special night . . .

Review:

This is the second book in the One Night series. The first book was about Jase & Nikki. This book is about Nikki’s brother & Jase’s best friend Tommy & Jase’s corpsman Jasmine.

I haven’t read a lot of books where the female lead is the soldier. I think this is the second book. Even though this was a short book…. It was good.
Everything moved along rather quickly for the main characters.
But, I felt it worked.

Tommy & Jasmine have been through a lot lately.

Tommy ex-girlfriend cheated on him ending his long term relationship. Feeling down about love & not really looking for anything serious.
When he saw Jasmine he couldn’t take his eyes off her her.

Jasmine is a corpsmen in the Navy. She was attached to Jase’s Marine unit in Afghanistan. They were under attract and Jase & Jasmine and some other guys from their unit were hurt. They were sent back to the states to recuperate.

When she saw Tommy… Something in her that she hasn’t felt in a long time shocked her. She hadn’t felt anything good since before the incident in Afghanistan.

Once they got together.. It was all fireworks. It felt intense.

Even though I enjoyed this book… I thought it was a little heavy on the military stuff. This book was way to short to tackle on Jasmines PTSD. & I felt it took away from the whole Tommy & Jasmine relationship. I mean… They only knew each other less than a day.. 5 hours if that tops. So… I didn’t like that.

The ending was cute…
overall… It was an ok read for me.

McFarland’s Farm (Hope #1) by Cardeno C. Review

McFarland’s Farm (Hope #1)
by Cardeno C.

Stars: 4

Reviewed by:
Michelle

Synopsis:

Wealthy, attractive Lucas Reika treats life like a party, moving from bar to bar and man to man. Thumbing his nose at his restaurateur father’s demand that he earn his keep, Lucas instead seduces a valued employee in the kitchen of their flagship restaurant, earning himself an ultimatum: lose access to his father’s money or stay in the middle of nowhere with a man he has secretly lusted over from afar.

Quiet, hard-working Jared McFarland loves his farm on the outskirts of Hope, Arizona, but he aches to have someone to come home to at the end of the day. Jared agrees to take in his longtime crush as a favor. But when Lucas invades his heart in addition to his space, Jared has to decide how much of himself he’s willing to risk and figure out if he can offer Lucas enough to keep him after his father’s punishment is over.

Review:

For being a very short story… It was pretty good & fast! I really felt the relationship come together for Lucas & Jared.
This book was kind of sad too. I felt really bad for Jared.

Jared & Lucas both had issues. That I think prevented them from moving forward with their lives.

Something horrible happened to Jared when he was in his early teens that left him with a scar that he felt no one could love… He pretty much kept to himself… Longing for a steady relationship. Someone to come home to.

Lucas was a wild loose canon. He didn’t care about anybody but himself. He was a spoiled rich kid with no responsibilities. His latest reckless behavior was just to much for his father to over look. Something  had to be done.

So he sent Lucas to the only place he knew that would straighten out his son. And maybe help out Jared too.

Jared & Lucas knowing each other helped me get over the instant love they had towards each other. I hate when I read a book & early on the main characters are in love with each other & will die for each other…lol
That’s just to over the top for me.
But… In this book… Lucas & Jared did have some sort of history.

The way they came together was nice. The sex they had was hot. They were like night & day…
The saying opposites attract… and I would say that totally applies to Jared and Lucas… It worked.
They made a cute couple.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author. I’m looking forward to reading her other book.

About this author


Cardeno C. – CC to friends – is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few “awwws” into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.

Heartwarming Stories. Strong Relationships. Forever Love.
